Jores underwent cardiac surgery.

During surgery, doctors removed excess muscle from the left side of Jores’s heart so that it can pump blood more normally. He should now be able to lead a more normal life with no symptoms from this condition.

He says, “I am excited to be able to return to Haiti and start working to help my family!”

Jores is a young man from Haiti. He lives with his parents in Port-au-Prince. He is not currently working because of his heart condition, but has a college degree in business management. Jores has a cardiac condition called left ventricular hypertrophy. The pumping muscles on the left side of his heart have become too thick because of an infection he suffered, and as a result cannot adequately pump blood to the rest of his body.

Jores will fly to the United States to receive treatment. On December 8, he will undergo cardiac surgery, during which surgeons will remove some of the muscle thickness from his heart, so that it can pump more normally. Another organization, The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano, is contributing $65,000 to pay for surgery.

Jores’s family also needs help to fund the costs of surgery prep. The $1,500 bill covers labs, medicines, and checkup and followup appointments. It also supports passport obtainment and the social workers from our medical partner, Haiti Cardiac Alliance, who will accompany Jores’s family overseas.

He says, “I am very glad to know that the doctors can make my heart normal again!”
